Upernavik has a Pilersuisoq supermarket that stocks a little of everything including limited, basic camping supplies. However, it is best to bring your own outdoor equipment with you. There is also a smaller Købmand LT-kiosk.
You can purchase souvenirs directly from the artisans at the Handicraft Workshop, or explore what is on offer at Grocer Qullilerisoq
Even the world’s very best sculptors could not imagine the intricacies or magnitude of the gargantuan icebergs that surround Upernavik, Greenland. Often mistaken from a distance as one of the thousands of islands making up the broken coastline of this part of Baffin Bay, they beckon travellers with an adventurous spirit to explore the natural wonders and remote settlements that lie hidden within this maze-like landscape.
Traditions remain strong despite the arrival of modern comforts, allowing visitors to experience what life used to be like for the Inuit of Greenland.
By North Greenland town standards, Upernavik is considered large although most people simply get around on foot. However, if you want a break, there are also taxis available.
For excursions in the area, the most common way to get around is by boat during the summer, or with dog sled or snowmobile during the winter.
